Injectable fillers are used primarily for cosmetic reasons. A natural filler material is injected to counter the effects of aging by filling in recessed areas. They can also be used to enhance lips, cheeks or other facial features. As these products are natural, the results generally last 6-12 months, depending on the filler used.
Perlane® and Restylane®
The body naturally produces hyaluronic acid that adds volume and smoothness to skin. Perlane® and Reslyane consist of a hyaluronic acid gel that can be used to treat severe facial wrinkles, such as nasolabial folds (lines from the nose to the corners of the mouth), filling and smoothing the skin. Treatments typically last for about six months and can also be applied to the lips, cheeks, jowls, and other sagging facial skin.
Juvederm is another safe and effective injectable gel. It is a cross-linked form of hyaluronic acid that allows for long lasting results, up to 1 year.
Evolence® (Collegen Injections)
Collegen is a natural substance produced by the body to provide structure, smoothness, and firmness behind your skin. It decreases with age. Evolence allows you to replace the collegen you’ve lost through aging.
